Please stop making personal attacks that add nothing to your argument. No one
cares. Let it be.
Let's move this in a more constructive direction then, no?
How about working on documenting the new aliases and add a knob to the Makefile
so that we can choose whether or not to install the stock config?
I'm not trying to fight this patch -- the idea is nice. Most users and distros
probably won't change stock aliases, so your energy may be better spent getting
consensus on what the stock aliases could be.
Would it not be better to have these aliases, plus/minus one or two, then none
Yes I know about .rpmsave files. For rpm, it'll refuse to upgrade Git since
this new file will conflict with an existing package. That's easier to deal
with because the config package can then be independently modified to install
its file to eg git.d/foo.conf in the directory include example. That would
then allow the upgrade, and at no point did the intended config ever get lost.
Puppet users, for example, may end up with rpmsave turds on their systems,
though. When you are managing lots of machines this can be very annoying --
that's why I mentioned it. Don't bother arguing this point any further. It's
In summary -- makefile knob, please, and at least mention the stock aliases
somewhere in the docs so that the users can know to read /etc/gitconfig if they
want to know more. Who knows, maybe it will get applied, but it definitively
won't if all you do is whine about it.
